The arguments against you were also not rebutted to squash the doubt and they needed to particularly when issues of safety was raised.
I’ve been to enough meetings to know it is better to discuss things with the people who are making the decisions. The floor brought up a few concerns, and these were discussed with the organisers at the very end of the evening, once the other entrants had sorted out their own entry queries with the organisers following the close of the meeting. As you would have noted, the issue regarding the single car entry took up a lot of oxygen in the meeting in what was intended as an information session for entrants, and it was made clear the floor would have little influence on whether the entry would be accepted or not.
The organisers made their decision, and from their point of view I can see where they were heading to.
It amused me somewhat that the chap who had concerns over the safety aspect of the 360CH’s brake pads wearing out over the event, had a car where he wasn’t able to wind (or slide) his window down, nor use his blinkers (because he said the car had none) to signal his intention to enter the pits for a sash change. I thought that would be a safety issue in itself.
And I hope that the gentleman querying the cost of lodging a protest, way in advance of the event starting, was jesting and not setting the tone of the event.
wow talk about first world problems
